The summer mornings remain refreshingly cool, but the days heat up quickly. I spend most of my time in the garden, weeding and watering or picking raspberries and black currants. The cucumbers continue to be a pleasant surprise, and I can barely keep up with the zucchini. Otherwise, I tend the hens. The younger ones are growing nicely; the older ones continue to lay eggs like clockwork.
The lack of post topics gnaws at me sometimes. At other times, it’s the best feeling in the world.
